Dairy Industry Silences Vegan Cookbook Author

Vegan cookbook author, Sharon Valencik.

My friend and vegan cookbook author, Sharon Valencik, was invited to appear on a TV show earlier this month, but the invitation was revoked when one of the advertisers - the dairy industry - objected.

I was livid. I was angry that the producers allowed their content to be manipulated by an advertiser. I was angry that the dairy industry felt so threatened, they had to try to silence a cookbook author. Of course, their actions were part of their larger efforts to continue to use and oppress animals in any manner they wish, without criticism.

In an exclusive interview, Sharon talks about her experience, and gives a free vegan dessert recipe!

Read the interview, then show Sharon some love by buying her book!

It’s all about making more money…
The dairy companies don’t want the public to know just How CRUEL and ABUSIVE they are to their animals… and how they are SO artificially enhanced, to the point of health questions… then the multitude would stop consuming their products…
Sharon Valencik Keep Trying,, In Our Numbers We Are Succeeding ! Thank You !!

This is absolutely outrageous! Makes one wonder where else these lies the coversion. I helped to organize a thanksLIVING celebration at a local vegan haunt yesterday. Last year we had 150 ish — this year over 400! Makes me wonder, tho’, how many spies were in the midst.

Let’s show our solidarity and let’s not walk in the obvious FEAR that they call home. Let’s buy the book and continue the fight!

That’s what you call “yellow”. No guts. That T.V. company who backed off because of the dairy industry is spineless.
